I didn't reformat when I loaded windows 7 last week. I did do a fresh install, might have to coming from XP, but I'm having a few bugs and think I should re-load and do the boot to set-up and re-format.
BUT I sure hate losing the week of tweaks...
Do those transfer programs work and will they just transfer my bugs?

It is safe to use the Windows 7 Easy transfer program. As it wont export settings that could affect the core settings of Windows 7.
